{I am so sorry that I've been so inactive. I promise I'll try to catch up within the next few days.}

TUESDAY DECEMBER 21: Bundle up, and grab your skates; that's right, we're going ice skating tonight. Whether you're taking your love interest or going with friends, prepare for some fun and try not to humiliate yourself too much.

"Come skating with me, Serena." Quinn begged as she put on a scarf and gloves. "You haven't been out of the house since Lucie was born. It'd be good for you."

I sighed. I knew I should go; if not to have some fun, but to spent time with Quinn. I had been so focused with Lucie lately I had zero time with any of my friends. Honestly, I felt bad. "I know, I know. I just don't want to leave her... I mean, who's going to take care of her while I'm gone?"

"Uh, how about Lewis, the father?" Quinn said, and again, she was right. I should let Lewis take more responsibility for his own daughter.

"I don't want to ask him." I said and bit my lip.

"Serena, I don't know what's going on with you two and I'm not going to ask unless you want to tell me. But whatever it is, get past it and let the father of your baby take care of her for a few hours."

I groaned, looking down at Lucie sleeping peacefully in my arms. "Fine." I kissed the top of her head, and walked into the bedroom where Lewis was lazily laying on the bed.

"Hey, Lew, do you think you can watch Lucie for a few hours? Quinn really wants me to come skating with her."

"You want to go skating rather than take care of your own daughter, Serena? Really?"

"Lewis, please. I haven't been out of the house since she's been born. I just need one night to myself to have a little fun. You go out all the time." I told him, already annoyed. It was like we couldn't have a normal conversation anymore. Everything was a fight, and I was always being a bad mother for wanting to go out. I don't know what had changed in him, but I was getting pretty tired of it.

"Fine." He grumbled. "Go out."

I handed Lucie over, who yawned but didn't wake up. I leaned over to give Lewis a kiss on the lips. "I love you."

"I love you too." He said, kissing me back. I slowly pulled away and forced a smile. "Have fun."

In less than an hour I was hand-in-hand with Quinn on the rink. I hadn't been ice skating in years, and this was something that just didn't come back naturally. I had already fallen twice, and I knew I would be sore in the morning. And yet it was the most fun I had had in weeks. Quinn and I laughed and screamed, skating around and around. 

"That was fun." I smiled as we headed over to Katie's Cafe for a cup of hot chocolate.

"Definately." She said. "I've missed you. I know you're busy with Lucie and everything..."

"I know." I said. "Lewis needs to help out more. I don't really know... I mean, why..."

"It's okay." Quinn said, putting her hand over mine. "I know what you mean. Jared and I had the same problem."

"How long until he got over it?"

She paused. "A while. But don't worry. You guys will get over it. I know you will."

"I hope so." I said. Through her reassurance, I could tell she was lying. Some days I didn't think we would get over it. Some days I thought we never would.
